Snuffed it.....

By cattyal  
I've had this one sitting on my desktop for a while now and I still like it so time to subject it to EPZ. Ok, technically it might be argued that it's not up to much and of course I had to use some Lucisart Whyeth on it but for all that I just like the light, shape, shadow etc.

Fantastic Alison.
Love the way the shadow is elongated, making it look quite a monster.
Even thugh the fly is no longer in this world, he has maintained some beautiful colours.

Thanks everyone Smile

There is a room at the top of the building here at work where flies emerge from under the eaves and then drop dead. I gathered a big pile of them a few weeks ago (well about a dozen) much to everyone's disgust and this was the only pretty one amongst the lot. Maybe I'll pop up again before I go home this evening......

Love it. I would clone out what looks like a mark on the left near the bottom.

Thank you for your award Bernard - a very nice way to round off my day Smile

Incidentally I went to look for my flies before I left the office and not a single one to be found - I shall have to wait for a warm day and see if they return. Meanwhile I'll be hunting for a bumble bee - I had a request for one back in November and have been waiting for the to reappear. I hasten to add that I won't be swatting any for a photo - they're too pretty for that!

Thanks Jools but thank you even more Jan for getting me past the annoying 29 before I even realised Smile (I've just had my daily losing EPZ for 10 minutes - always around the same sort of time for some reason.)
